Behind the Name: What is Hansa?

In Hinduism, each god or goddess has an associated vahana ("that which carries").

Hansa, the swan, is the vahana of Saraswati – the goddess of knowledge, music, arts, wisdom, and learning.

The goddess and the vahana are connected as body and soul.

Hansa possesses great knowledge and abilities as the vahana of Saraswati.

According to lore, Hansa can separate milk from water, drinking just the milk when presented with a mixture of the two.

This discerning character, with its soul based in knowledge and creativity, is the inspiration for the name Hansa Scribe.

It was a joy working with Sarah on our project for which she transcribed almost 300 hours of interviews.  We found her very reliable, fast, and accurate - and really easy to communicate with. We hope to work with her again soon.
